Abstract (English)

This catalogue documents a major exhibition of British photography from 1945 to 1989. Badger focuses on how American modernism influenced the British photographic community. Kent considers the artist's political and social responsabilities in relation to how meaning is created in photographs. Williams emphasizes the aesthetic values of feminist photography. Ehrlich calls attention to how influences from Germany and the United States affected cultural life in Britain after World War II. Jeffrey discusses British landscape photography in terms of the impersonal and transcendental aspects of modernism. Statements by Badger and Benton-Harris, and Osman. Biographical notes. 38 bibl. ref.
